So if some one stole something from you you'd make them a cup of tea, pat them on the back and send them on their way?

Yuh, right.

I never said they were wrong? I was merely pointing out they are stating the obvious because they are constantly in the news for suing or something negative.
And to answer your question, last time someone tried stealing for me(a brand new bike), I beat the crap out of him and his friends along with my best friend. So no, I wouldn't make a cup of tea for them, I don't even like tea

What Asetek are doing is the legal version of assault. Probably the same route NBD would take if he were in their shoes.

Surprised Caselabs have not taken on Thermaltake tbh.

Actually it's self defense. They were robbing me and I was protecting my property.

I would have yes, but all my point was is that they just constantly do this stuff. Should rename the company​ to "We take legal action all the time"

Caselabs ended up apologising, probably after realising that a company like Thermaltake could afford the legal action but they couldn't.

When you are the pioneer of a product you will find yourself constantly having to make sure no one rips you off. Asetek pretty much invented the AIO and if they did not then they made it mainstream.

I guess it never gets old hahaha. I mean if you were Asetek you'd probably be rolling in dough and bored. What better way to spend an evening than filing lawsuits

$600k is a bit lame though really.

It's quite a bit i'd think for such a niche market
